Eating Disorder Programs At Sovereign Health
Sovereign Health’s adolescent Eating Disorder Program in Rancho San Diego, California, offers comprehensive, holistic treatment for girls ages 12 to 17 with anorexia, bulimia or binge-eating disorder. Our program fosters the development of a healthy body image and lifestyle routine. Underlying and co-occurring conditions are addressed to break the cycle of disordered eating and restore physical and mental health. We also provide plenty of support for parents and families.
Our multidisciplinary treatment teams of physicians, therapists, dietitians and other professionals work together to provide the most effective treatment experience for each patient. Individual, group and family therapy provide a cornerstone for treatment. Other modalities include nutrition and exercise programs, experiential therapy and cognitive remediation.
The Sovereign Health Eating Disorder Program also fosters important life skills, which include interpersonal communication, healthy relationships, positive coping behaviors, nutrition and meal preparation, relapse prevention and much more. This program not only focuses on the treatment for eating disorders but also teaches important life skills to be successful in recovery.
We also offer neurofeedback as an adjunct therapy. Neurofeedback measures brain waves in response to different sounds and images using software interface. This noninvasive form of “brain training” helps patients learn self-regulation and to develop new neuronal connections. These new connections can override old thought patterns and reinforce healthy habit formation.
Our residential treatment program takes place at our treatment facility and patients reside in our 14-bed home-like residence. The residence is located on our beautiful Rancho San Diego campus where everything is geared toward teens. Patients enjoy plenty of outdoor recreation, including equine therapy and sports, as well as off-campus outings. Indoor activities are age-appropriate and designed to provide relaxation and self-expression. Patients are provided with professional supervision at all times.
At Sovereign Health eating disorder treatment centers, we provide ample opportunities for family and friends to show their love and support because that is such an important part of treatment at our eating disorder recovery center. Contact information, visiting hours, family weekends and therapeutic sessions allow loved ones to learn about eating disorders and be involved in the healing process. Many families find that the process brings them closer than ever before, and they are better able to manage the ups and downs of life together.
